Mikey 'Dances With The Stars' and doesn't fall (yet)
by Dave Grayson Backed by a tremendous amount of hoopla, "Dancing With The Stars", (DWTS), made it's highly anticipated season debut September 15th on the ABC Network. I wouldn't know much about that. If by chance there's something that I need to know I can always ask the lady of the house who never misses this program. I really don't have anything against the massive amount of talent shows that dominates the airwaves these days-as long as I don't have to watch them. I honestly respect those who love to dance-as long as I don't have to get out on the dance floor. However, when I learned that NASCAR driver/Fox Sports TV analyst Michael Waltrip was one of the dancing celebrities I knew I had to watch.
